. [applause] up in 15 minutes, we will go live to the white house where president obama will make a statement on world aids day. that is scheduled for 1:20 eastern. we will have that life. also, the house is back today at 2:00 eastern. they're getting the week started with speeches. items being debated today, expanding the ban on the sale of firearms that are undefinable with metal detectors. they will also discuss the dodd frank law. see the house live when they begin today at 2:00. legislative work will begin at 5:00. the supreme court has announced a couple of divisions today as they return from the thanksgiving break. they are refusing to consider thawing out new york state taxes on websites like amazon.com. the law forces them to remit sales tax. another division related to the health care law -- the justices are leaving in place a federal appeals ruling dismissing a suit from liberty university challenging a portion of the law that requires most employees to provide health insurance to their employees. on the fed page in the washington post, the supreme court is lacking cases to conside

're watching from the president, his white house, this new strike team. there are some of leaders right there, these democratic lawmakers. do you think there's enough time for the president to rewrite the narrative on obama care? >> absolutely. absolutely, thomas. the main point that has to be made is that the current system before the aca is absolutely dysfunctional. 48 million people, no health insurance. we spent twice as much per capita on health care as the people of any other nation. if we spent what other nations spent on health care, we'd save $900 billion a year. 45,000 people die in this con electroeve -- country every year because they don't have insurance and don't get to the doctor on time. we pay the highest price in the world on prescription drugs. this is a system that cannot last. in my view, i think we should be moving toward a medicare for all single payer system. but the aca is a step forward. 20 million people have more health insurance. we end the disaster of the obscenity, the obscenity of this pre-existing conditions imposed upon us by the insurance companies. now, the
sanctions. there really is a sense here at the white house at least that that could undermine this effort to get a deal done with iran. i also think president obama aiming his arguments at the israeli audience. a lot of skeptics there. >> yeah. >> reporter: 77% of israelis are skeptical of this deal, opposed to the deal. prime minister netanyahu called it historic mistake. so i think the president really trying to push back against some of that rhetoric, as well, because, of course, it is quite different here in the u.s. looking at the polls actually you see that fair amount of americans do support this deal and they don't want to see this head in a military direction. >> right. very briefly, in a little bit of time left, we learned over the weekend that the president will mrs. obama will be traveling to south africa as part of the weeklong celebration as i understand it. tuesday's the day for heads of state. >> reporter: we're still waiting to get more details from the white house but you're absolutely right. president obama will travel to south africa along with former president george

are expected to pay for themselves in energy savings over the course of president obama's tenure. but just down the street at the grand hyatt hotel in washington, the white house's solar panels are the object of scorn and strategy. it is the meeting of the exchange council, alec, the consortium, where mostly republicans fought for the passage in their states. the initiative is to punish american homeowners who choose to go solar, the idea is to make the solar-powered homeowners pay a penalty for using fewer fossil fuels, disincentivize the use. alec's stated objective is blocking the renewable energy at the state and federal level. touting their laws that reform, freeze or repeal state or renewable energy mandates. these internal documents obtained by "the guardian" boasts that 15 states used this kind of legislation. they try to get their bills copied and passed as law in as many states as possible. that is what they do. the american legislative exchange council. they write or take legislation and then shop it to other states. sometimes they already became law, like in the bill stripping union
funeral. here in america, flags are lowered at the capitol and the white house. and candlelight vigils are planned for tonight. president obama, who was inspired by mandela's life and visited with his family this past summer will be among hundreds of world leaders heading to pretoria to honor him. michelle kosinski is outside mandela's home and where the official memorial service will be held. it's 10:00 p.m. and crowds have been swelling for 24 hours. what's the feeling there? >> reporter: that's right. a lot of people didn't even find out what it happened until midnight here last night. several hours after he passed away. and so it was really early in the morning once dawn broke that people started flooding this place. as soon as they got wortd he died, this became a crowd. it has been nonstop. even though it's 10:00 here now, it is only gotten more and more lively over the last three or four hours. a lot of people are working and came here after work. it is not as if people are staying all day, it's an endless procession, people passing through and many bringing flowers and some of
of the elders delegation, an international human rights group that is chaired by kofi annan. >> the white house has backed away from a reported statement made two years that president obama had never met an uncle who lives near boston. it turns out the president not only knew the uncle, he actually once lived with him. why all the confusion? here's cnn's brian todd. >> reporter: he's a 69-year-old man who lives outside of boston. the "boston globe" previously cited the white house as saying the president and his uncle had never met. now the white house press secretary said this -- >> the president said he stayed with his uncle for a brief period of time until his apartment was ready. >> reporter: he said he said with him for three weeks. why the different accounts? >> back when this arose, folks looked at the president's book and there was no evidence that they met. >> jay carney said it was when he asked the president when he was told. critics of the white house say this speaks to a deeper credibility problem of the president and his staff not being forthcoming. >> so really, it was such an un
on this. there's nobody in the america who has not at least heard of obama care and i think that -- i think that what we're seeing is their very real refusal to go along with it because as you say, it's a bad idea for them. >> the white house, charlie, has to be deeply worried about the new harvard millennial poll. only 22% of young americans plan to sign up. 47% say it's unlikely they are going to sign up. i mean, those young people are the ones who are supposed to pay, as you point out, for the higher health costs for older and sick americans. if that doesn't happen, charlie, it could cause what experts say is a death spiral of skyrocketing premiums and then the risk, the collapse of the entire system. right? >> and i think -- absolutely. and i think that is exactly why the administration would much rather spend their time talking about what a disaster the website is and we're going to fix the website and get the glitches out. and you know what, eventually -- and they compare it to the rollout of the iphone, as if obama care is somehow could be likened in any other way to the iphone
mentioned who, word of the white house came through there, the center for american progress and he's speaking to folks across the country especially in the wake of the whole meltdown of the obama care website. this gives him more of a positive message to give to democrats, and to a working class people certainly who have been suffering on the losing end of a rising income and equality. >> you pointed out, susan, that this is not unique to his campaign either for barack obama or period. it's been used before this income inequality theme. john edward his the two americas. most recently here in new york bill de blasio's two cities theme, and in one case it worked and in another case it didn't if you talk about being elected. maybe that message can work on a local level and not too effective nationally? >> the nation is divided on whether these proposals on whether the government can make things better or whether you need to rely on the private sector and democrats have a firm view that, yes, that's one of the roles of the government including the federal government and the the republi
worst week, i hate to say it, sonny obama, bad dog, jumped on a toddler at the white house and created the worst christmas card of all time. >> i know. but that toddler was so cute. got right back up. she was amazing, right? morris, what's your best and worst? >> my best is my wife's birthday this weekend, so i have to give her the best week. but looking at globally, it's the best and the worst with losing nelson mandela who was a great leader. we're losing him and losing a real superstar. my heart goes out to the mandela family and the rest of the world for losing him. >> susan, best and worst? >> best goes to bill bratton who proves you can go back home again. he's going to be the police commissioner of new york city under mayor elect bill de blasio. and the worst week goes to charlie crist who shows sometimes you can't go home again and his campaign manager, bill aires, just quit after less than a month. >> guys, thanks so much. happy to have you all. that's a wrap-up of "weekends with alex witt." see you right back here tomorrow at noon eastern time. up next, craig melvin, about th
june 30th, tom donyell -- mr. obama's national security advisor. he is now a distinguished fellow at the council on foreign relations. he joins me to talk about recent developments and the issues he was deeply involved in at the white house from iran to winding down the war in afghanistan to mitigating tensions between china and japan. welcome back to the show. >> great to see you. >> let's 23irs talk about iran, you were deeply involved in this whole policy, it appears that what we're saying is we need iran to essentially shut downing parts of its nuclear program so that it cannot have the kind of breakout capacity that -- he says we are not going to dismantle a single thing, we're willing to freeze, we're willing to have everything monitored, but no dismantling, how do you bridge those two positions? >> the reason we're here is the enormous pressure that was put on -- president rowhani took a max mallist stand. they're going to have to assure the international community in very concrete, verifiable and solid ways that they're not working on a nuclear weapon. >> that means rollin
offensive play, and i mean that in terms of offense/defense, we've seen from the white house in a long time. and for those of us who paid close attention two years ago, it's very much an echo of president obama's major vision for the country, is it not? >> no question about it. it's been his vision really throughout the time he's been in public life. i remember interviewing president obama about income inequality in the fall of 2007. what he was doing in this speech is making a broad argument for government action across the board, not just on things like the minimum wage, but also domestic investments and infrastructure and education, job training. also his health care law. he's always seen the aforfordab care act as one element of an agenda to give a foundation of stability and security economically under people as they try to get into the middle class. he was reiterating that argument today. as you said, the shift to a more offensive argument shows how key it was to get that website working by the december 1st deadline because that is something that allows the administration to shift and
